Subject: Bela Lugosi (almost) Conquers the World
A real treat for Lugosi fans as he employs an amazing variety of super-weapons against enemies both foreign and domestic. What a genius! He's out to conquer the world, almost single-handedly (with a little help from his treacherous sidekick Monk, who absorbs enough lead to sink a boat in the course of the 12 chapters and is still there for the thrilling finish). Bela can make himself invisible with his "Divisualizer" belt and has one of the coolest and scariest robots you ever saw.

Many thanks to Scott Saunders for bringing this back to IA! It's a load of goofy fun.

I downloaded the MPEG4 files. Audio and video were fine.

Subject: many imaginative plot devices
This one is better than most of the serials I've seen (the Green Hornet is almost laughable) as Bela Lugosi is very good as he goes more and more crazy throughout the serials, unfortunately the best ones, like all serials, are the first and last and the ones between were just milking the turkeys.

Lots of interesting ideas, many with actual physics behind them, were used to make the mad scientist powerful. It's really light entertainment. The G-Man and his sidekicks destroy as much or more than anybody else in this series, but that hasn't changed much in real life, either.
